Warner Bros release ‘Inception’ and ‘The Dark Knight’ App Editions

Company claims products provide an 'innovative new experience'

Warner Bros Digital Distribution (WBDD) are launching App Editions of Inception and The Dark Knight.

The App Editions are available for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.

According to Apple, App Editions offer users the first five minutes of the films and a portion of bonus content that can include games, trivia, soundtracks and soundboards.

The entire film can then be unlocked via an in-app purchase, which enables downloading and unlimited streaming, as well as access to the entire array of bonus content available.

Thomas Gewecke, President of Warner Bros Digital Distribution said: “Warner Bros is bringing more than 100 million Apple device owners a highly innovative new way to experience their favorite films.”

He added: “For many, watching a movie is a social activity and App Editions are the first mobile product to deliver this capability on a global scale. They offer a fully connected experience, allowing viewers to engage with others around the world in real-time through Facebook and Twitter.”

More Warner Bros films are due to be released in this way this year, as well as movies from the company’s back catalogue.
